3-way calling usage

Post by mattymonroe@juno.com » Wed Apr 28, 2010 9:22 pm

My wife frequently uses 3-way calling to talk with her mom and sister at the same time. Is it considered double minute usage for a 3-way call since you're using two lines?

Thanks.
Matt

Yes, but you are not paying by the minute so what's the difference?

Thanks for the responses. I'm concerned about reaching the 5000 minute limit. They talk daily for a couple of hours....

The 5000 minute limit doesn't apply to incoming calls. Have them call in half of the time and you won't be anywhere near the limit. Have her mom and sister get Ooma's and the limit doesn't apply at all.
